Chopra in action for Ipswich

Chopra spent three weeks in the Sporting Chance clinic last season in a bid to fight his addiction.

He revealed in 2011 he had lost as much as £2m, spending £20,000 a day. Ipswich had also loaned him £250,000 to pay off debts.

A spokesman for the club said Chopra's decision to delete his account was his own and that "sometimes banter can be a little over the top".

"In an era when fans don't get close to players it's a good communication tool, but players should think before they tweet," he added.
